Lovoo founder invests in stroller
The Munich-based start-up StrollMe wants to score points with a rideable vehicle for children. Now it is receiving money from two new investors.
Hamburg-based Hanse Ventures is investing in startup StrollMe together with Edition.VC, the venture capital firm of Lovoo founder Björn Bak. Deutsche Startupsreports. Founded last year by Timon Beutel and Sebastian Reichelt, the company offers a subscription model for strollers and children's bikes. There is no information about the amount of the investment, but about the distribution of the company shares: Hanse Ventures now holds 16.7 percent of StrollMe, Edition.VC 9.3 percent. The two founders are still majority shareholders with 36 percent each.
At StrollMe, parents can buy a subscription from 12.50 euros a month. On its website, the start-up writes: "The subscription grows with your child and you are always on the road with the appropriate size." The start-up offers, among other things, a "Mountain Buggy" and the Austrian "Woom" children's bikes.
